Pretty Little Liars is an American teen drama mystery thriller television series developed by I. Marlene King and is loosely based on the novel series of the same name written by Sara Shepard. The series follows the lives of four high school girls whose clique falls apart after the disappearance of their leader. One year later, the estranged friends are reunited as they begin receiving messages from a mysterious figure named "A" who threatens to expose their deepest secrets. The series features an ensemble cast, headed by Troian Bellisario as Spencer Hastings, Lucy Hale as Aria Montgomery, Ashley Benson as Hanna Marin, Shay Mitchell as Emily Fields, Sasha Pieterse as Alison DiLaurentis, and Janel Parrish as Mona Vanderwaal.

The series premiered on June 8, 2010 on ABC Family and ended on June 27, 2017. After an initial order of 10 episodes, ABC Family ordered an additional 12 episodes on June 28, 2010. The ratings success of the first 10 episodes prompted the book series to be extended beyond the initial eight novels.[1] Since its debut, the series has received mixed reviews from television critics, but remained a relative success for ABC Family, garnering a large fandom.

It is the first series in the Pretty Little Liars franchise, with the show having two spin-offs: Ravenswood and Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists (the latter also being a sequel).[2][3] Both were cancelled after one season. On June 10, 2014, Pretty Little Liars was renewed for its sixth and seventh seasons. On August 29, 2016, Freeform confirmed that the series would be ending after its seventh season in 2017.[4] The series finale was viewed by an estimated 1.41 million viewers. It had the second-highest rating of any cable TV series that aired that night.[5] The episode was followed by "A-List Wrap Party", a live special featuring the cast and executive producer King discussing the series ending.

Premise[edit]

Set in the suburban town of Rosewood, Pennsylvania, the series follows the lives of five high school girls: Spencer Hastings, Alison DiLaurentis, Aria Montgomery, Hanna Marin and Emily Fields, whose clique falls apart after the leader of the group, Alison, goes missing. One year later, the remaining estranged friends are reunited as they begin receiving messages from a mysterious villain named "A" and later from "A.D.", who threatens and tortures them for the mistakes and lies they have made and told before and after Alison's death. At first, they think it is Alison herself, but after her body is found, the girls realize that it is somebody else who wants revenge.

The core cast of Pretty Little Liars at The Paley Center For Media's PaleyFest 2014 Honoring "Pretty Little Liars". From left: Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson, Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell, and Sasha Pieterse.
  • Troian Bellisario as Spencer Hastings, an extreme perfectionist who likes to please her wealthy family and her friends. She is very competitive and an overachiever. Spencer is strong-willed, smart, and kind towards everyone around her, but isn't afraid to take down someone who is a threat to someone she cares about. Her love interest throughout the series is Toby Cavanaugh (Keegan Allen).
  • Ashley Benson as Hanna Marin, a girl who used to have an eating disorder. She use to be overweight, with the nickname 'Hefty Hanna'. After Alison DiLaurentis disappeared, Hanna lost weight and changed her style, which seemed similar to Alison's, with the help of her new best friend Mona Vanderwaal. This resulted in Hanna becoming the most popular girl in school. Over the course of the series, Hanna cares more about the people around her and tries to protect herself and her friends. She is loyal and strong. She has had some love affairs through the series.
  • Holly Marie Combs as Ella Montgomery, the mother of Aria and Mike, as well as the wife of Byron, and on-and-off English teacher at Rosewood High. She is often in the crosshairs of "A" and is protected by Aria. She is best friends along with the other moms and in 6A she is targeted by Charles.
  • Lucy Hale as Aria Montgomery, an artsy chameleon who is very intelligent, caring, and has a good sense of style. She's the one who keeps her family together. Aria spent some time as a "goth". She wore black, punk-like clothing and had pink highlights in her hair. After Alison disappeared, Aria and her family moved to Iceland for a year because of Alison's disappearance and her father's infidelity, before returning to Rosewood. When Aria and her family moved back to Rosewood, she is no longer a "goth" as she used to be, she is a girly-girl. She is extremely protective of her family and friends and will go to new heights to help them.
  • Ian Harding as Ezra Fitz, an English teacher at Rosewood High who begins a relationship with Aria which causes a lot of tension due to her being his student.
  • Bianca Lawson as Maya St. Germain, a new girl who moves into Rosewood and develops a romantic relationship with Emily, becoming her first girlfriend. She moves into Alison's old house which causes tension with the girls at first but they quickly begin to like her.
  • Laura Leighton as Ashley Marin, Hanna's mother. She is working as a member of the bank until she is arrested as the suspected murderer of Darren Wilden. She is released when Mona takes the blame for murder and Pastor Ted posts her bail. She then begins working for Mrs. DiLaurentis. After the five-year time jump, she has now turned Radley into a fancy hotel and is working as the manager.
  • Chad Lowe as Byron Montgomery, Aria and Mike's father, and Ella's husband. He is the reason "A" coerces Aria, as he has an ongoing affair with Meredith, one of his students at Hollis College. Chad Lowe is the first cast member to direct an episode of the series, preceding Troian Bellisario.
  • Shay Mitchell as Emily Fields, the sporty one in the group. She is the captain of the high school swim team and eventually becomes the team's coach. Emily demonstrates a kind hearted and very loyal demeanor towards everyone. Emily is gay but is closeted at the beginning of the series; she comes out during season one.
  • Nia Peeples as Pam Fields, Emily's mother and Wayne's wife.
  • Sasha Pieterse as Alison DiLaurentis, the former "queen bee" of her clique, and the most popular girl in school before her disappearance. She enjoys using people's deepest secrets against them to keep them in line. Charming and manipulative, Alison managed to manipulate all four of her friends in one way or another and is skilled at finding ways to blackmail others. It was later revealed that Alison is alive and was on the run from "A".
  • Tyler Blackburn as Caleb Rivers. Caleb is Hanna's primary love interest throughout the series.
  • Janel Parrish as Mona Vanderwaal, the original and first "A". She is Alison's stalker prior to her disappearance and saw being "A" as her chance to avenge the way Alison treated her. After Alison disappeared she became best friends with Hanna Marin and they transformed themselves into the most popular girls at school, taking Alison's place.
  • Andrea Parker as Jessica DiLaurentis and Mary Drake, twin sisters. Jessica is the mother of Alison and Jason. Mary is the biological mother of the second "A" in history, Charlotte Drake (Vanessa Ray) and was admitted to Radley Sanitarium for most of her life but has now returned to Rosewood.

Marketing[edit]

Pretty Little Liars was called one of the most spectacular new shows of summer 2010 thanks to heavy promotion by ABC Family, including "spicy promos and hot posters".[73] ABC Family encouraged fans to host a "Pretty Little Premiere Party" for the show by sending the first respondents a fan kit,[74] and selected applicants to become part of an interactive "Secret Keeper Game" played with iPhones provided by the network.[75] The show's official Facebook and Twitter accounts also promoted special fan features, including a "Pretty Little Lie Detector".[76] Los Angeles department store Kitson showcased the show in their shop window.[77]

Pretty Little Liars opened with mixed reviews. Metacritic gave the pilot episode 54 out of 100, based upon 14 critical reviews.[90] The New York Daily News gave the show a positive review, commenting that it "makes most popular vampire romances look anemic", while concluding, "Pretty Little Liars could go in several directions, including mundane teen clichés. It's got an equally good shot at making us care about these imperfect pretty girls."[91] A writer on Terror Hook has stated that " 'Pretty Little Liars' gets off to a very promising start. Great production all around, the writing keeps the viewer on their toes, and the acting just reinforces it. The overall mystery of the show in the end is dark and unpredictable, even stepping into the slasher film realm."[92] The New York Post gave the show three out of five stars, stating, "OK, so we've established that there is no socially redeeming value in this series and that your kids shouldn't watch it if they are too young and impressionable. But if you can distract them enough to miss the first 15 minutes, the show isn't half-bad. Actually, it is half-good, if that makes sense."[93] The Los Angeles Times wrote that the series is "one of those shows that manages to mildly, and perhaps unintentionally, spoof its genre while fully participating in it, and that's not a bad thing at all."[94]

Entertainment Weekly had a less favorable review, giving the show a letter grade of "D−", saying, "Imagine the pitch for Liars: It's I Know What You Did Last Summer meets Gossip Girl, but like not so subtle." It went on to say that the plot "hits every racy teen entertainment mark so hard (everyone's hair is so full—of secrets!) that it feels like the only thing missing is a visit from the ghosts of Jennifer Love Hewitt and Freddie Prinze, Jr."[95] The Hollywood Reporter compared the show to those on The CW and noted, "Sure, there's a lot here that sustains more eye-rolling than interested stares, but a little patience might be warranted."[96]

Ratings[edit]

Since the series premiere, Pretty Little Liars has remained popular. In 2016, a New York Times study of the 50 TV shows with the most Facebook Likes found that the show's "popularity is tilted toward women more than any other show in the data — over 94 percent of 'likes' come from women".[97]

The series earned its highest rated episode with 4.20 million total viewers, ranking among ABC Family's top 5 telecasts in adult viewers 18–34, total viewers and women viewers.[98] The highest rated episodes include season one's finale, with 3.64 million, and season two's premiere and finale episodes, each yielding nearly 3.7 million viewers.[99][100][101] The show stands as the most watched series on ABC Family, maintaining a steady viewership of over 2.5 million and currently standing as the only show to yield an average of over 2 million viewers.
